Chez Pascal April 3, 6-8 pm
Chef Matt Genuso
Rhode Island native Matt Gennuso traveled far and wide to learn all he could about food, so that in the end he could return home to share his cuisine with Providence. Gennuso’s journey began at the Culinary Institute of America. He spent one year in Holland honing his skills and then worked under notable chefs such as Chef Paul Bertolli of Oliveto in Oakland, California, and Tom Colicchio during his time at Gramercy Tavern in New York. In Boston, Gennuso worked at Hamersley’s Bistro where he mastered his butchery skills—a first step toward charcuterie.
In 2003, back in his home state, Gennuso opened Chez Pascal, where he features Rhody produce on his French-inspired seasonal menu. In 2009, he started selling his sausages from a truck, which eventually turned into walk-up window and casual eatery called Wurst Kitchen that specializes in outstanding Rhode Island “saugies.”
Tickets are $75 per person and must be purchased in advance. Seating is limited so make your reservation early.

Springing into action
(May 06, '16)
Despite the wretched weather this week, we ushered in May with a flurry of activity. The volunteers helped us pot up 100 dahlias in preparation for planting out in the gardens next month. They also transplanted Cosmos and Zinnia seedlings that will eventually be planted in the Cutting Garden. We are trialing about a dozen […]
